Question about Security Labs Time Lapse Recorder
Hi guys, need help with a TLC 2100 Time-lapse recorder with a SMV116 Robot multiplexer.
This system belongs to a small business in the rural area where I live.
The first problem is, when we watch the recorded tape in the time-lapse recorder it switches from screen to screen so fast that we can't see anything.
It is a 16 channel simplex multiplexer and they are using 9 cameras. We are using a T120 tape. When we are recording we have the time set to 120. When we review the tape we set the speed down to 02. The owner tells me that these are the same settings that they have been using for years.
If I change the speed to 48 when we are reveiwing the tape, which slows the channel switching down, it will displays each camera screen but seems to be picking up some type of noise or something, There are scrambled lines at the top of the screen. The owner says this is not normal.
My second problem is, we are not able to stay on one screen to watch for any period of time. It just keeps switching from camera to camera.
From my understanding, over the past few weeks, a few of the guys that work there have changed the settings and moved some of the cables around to try to fix this problem. So I am not sure if the settings or cables are where they should be.
This business is thinking about up dating with a new DVR to put in a concealed location but would like to get this recorder working to use it as a decoy or dummy.
Does anyone have any idea what this problem might be.
Sounds like the heads on your TLC 2100 Time-lapse recorder are in their last legs. This is normal for those units. The reason you are having those scramble lines towards the top of the screen is because you are not playing at normal play speed.
The problem with the switching between cameras is that the "dwell time" settings is set to high. Most dvr's you can just disable that.
If you are looking to upgrade look here.

Am not familiar with an SSC-960, there are however SVR-960 (4 versions) by
Normally Samsung follows similar installation procedures and the differences in
their model are advance features and the length of recording time. If this could be of any help,
is a users’ manual for a 1280 hrs model. It includes installation procedures.
Alternately you can try Google for “svr 960 pdf” but when I tried it most that
I can get are German language versions.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
